Batch Juicing on a Budget: Best Tips to Save Money, Time, & Effort… for Freshness, Less Oxidation, and Time Management

Batch Juicing on a Budget: Best Tips to Save Money, Time, & Effort… for Freshness, Less Oxidation, and Time Management

I often hear from people that they want to juice, but simply don’t have the time, resources, or knowledge to be able to do it. So this blog post is all about giving you the BEST tips to save you time, money, and effort. This is a crash course on batch juicing with an emphasis on budget-saving tips.

The definition of batch or bulk juicing is to juice a lot of produce at one time for one or multiple uses. It is useful and essential for many reasons!

  • For those who want to have lots of juice to drink at one time
  • For those doing a juice cleanse 
  • For those who want lots of juice prepared in advance to drink throughout the week 
  • For those who enjoy meal prep
  • There are so many benefits to batch juicing!

My personal favorite reason for batch juicing is that it ensures I drink freshly-pressed juice everyday. I batch juice once or twice a week, and I make enough to last me the entire week. That means I’m not juicing every morning, and I’m not cleaning my juicer everyday. I’m only juicing once or twice a week, and I’m getting to enjoy the benefits of drinking fresh juices everyday. 

Batch juicing is also useful for family-style meals or family prep, people on the go, and people who don’t want to clean their juicer on a daily basis! Juicing and cleaning your juicer once or twice a week compared to everyday is a game-changer. I personally don’t enjoy cleaning my juicer, so if I can make a week’s worth of juice and only clean my juicer once a week, I’m down!

Fresh is always best, AND there are benefits to batch juicing to make sure you always have a juice to drink. This is better than settling for other undesirable options!

When I talk about batch juicing, I’m talking about making more than one jar of juice at a time. In order to batch or bulk juice, it’s necessary to have a machine that can do it. I recommend slow, cold-pressed machines that can handle batch juicing and that won’t get overheated. Most centrifugal juicers or other horizontal juicers are only designed to juice a few cups or one jar of juice at a time. If you try to batch juice with these machines, they might burn out on you or just go much more slowly. You’ll spend all day in the kitchen. It will save you time to have a vertical machine that is designed to juice larger quantities.  

I have the J2 Nama juicer in my home, and it’s the one I LOVE and use. I believe it to be the best juicer on the market right now. I recommend the Nama J2 juicer for the following reasons:

  • Its revolutionary technology saves you time, effort, money, and preparation.
  • The machine is built for batch juicing. Its powerful motor and torque are built to handle juicing lots at one time.
  • You don’t have to chop things as small because it has a wide open hopper that allows you to place in whole ingredients at a time.
  • It has an automatic stop and start so you can let it run and keep chopping or multitasking around the kitchen while it’s making juice for you.
  • There is less oxidation with this cold-pressed juicer so your juices preserve naturally in a sealed-tight jar and will stay fresher for a longer period of time without adding any preservatives.
  • The hands-free technology allows you to step away while it’s making juice, and it’s ready to enjoy when you come back.
  • AND NAMA just launched their NEW accessories that make batch juicing even easier and more time efficient! I can’t wait to feature these new accessories in today’s video, and I’ll be sharing a new review video of all of the accessories in an upcoming video. They’ve just released their new citrus attachment, new large hopper attachment, large pitcher set, and even new glass bottles in different sizes to accommodate your needs. All of these new accessories were made to help make your juicing experience THAT much easier and enjoyable. I’m so excited about them! 

You can get $55 OFF a Nama J2 juicer or even $80 OFF a new C2 Juicer + Blender using the code: FULLYRAWJUICE. That link and code are below in the description for you. Please go check them out.

If you’d like to reference my previous batching juicing videos or even  juicer comparison videos you can see the difference between horizontal, centrifugal, and slow cold-pressed juicers, and those are linked below for you as well.

Top money-saving tips while batch juicing:

  • Buy your fruits and veggies in bulk from the grocery stores.
  • Buy in bulk from farmer’s markets or make deals for bulk discounts.
  • Grow your own food! There is nothing more abundant than growing your own food.
  • Key tip: Make sure to have one bulk item that is abundant. I’m going to show you how to do this today. 
  • Juicing water-rich items like cucumbers, watermelons, pineapple, or apples is easy, hydrating, and cost-effective. The most cost-effective items to juice are usually watermelons, pineapple, apples, and citrus, because they yield SO much juice and are usually priced LESS, AND you can buy them in bulk to stretch out your savings. You can juice a lot for less money. Some fruits or veggies are usually available in larger quantities for discounted prices.
  • The more one-off or unique produce items you purchase to juice, the more expensive it will get. So use water-rich items like watermelon, pineapple, cucumbers, citrus, or apples for the bulk of your juicing recipes, then sprinkle in extra flavor with other things that might be more expensive like other fruits, greens, roots, herbs, and more.
  • ALSO…BUY IN SEASON! Produce is less expensive when it’s in season, and it’s more sustainable.
  • Don’t be afraid to invest in a good juicer, because a GOOD juicer will save you MORE money over time in produce, yield, quality, storage, and more. Trust me on this.

How to make your juices last longer:

  • Get some glass mason jars or sealed tight containers (I would avoid plastic) to properly seal out any air. Air in the container will make your juices oxidize faster. 
  • Adding lime or lemon helps to preserve your juices.
  • Pineapple is also a great preservative, I’ve found. The pineapple juice I recently made lasts for a week with the J2. Pineapple juice lasts longer on its own, and I find it tastes like the sweetest nectar.
  • Storage or vacuum seal jars (pour to the top of the jar and tighten)

More tips for batch juicing:

  • Zero waste tip: at the end of every week juice everything that’s leftover so that there’s no waste
  • Have fun making different combinations and keep it simple.
  • The more simple the juice, the easier it becomes to batch juice in large quantities. I’ve found 1-3 ingredients last longer than 5-12 ingredients.
  • Time-saving tip: easier for meal prep to batch at the beginning and have one jar for a day. 
  • Breakfast is made the entire day for 3-5 days…possibly a few more.
  • Time-saving tip: have all your prep done ahead of time so you can just load the ingredients into the hopper and walk away.
  • Find lots of batch juicing recipes on my FullyRaw Recipe app for you to try at any time! 
  • 3 easy bulk recipes you can try:
  • Apple, Cabbage, Lime, Beet
  • Pineapple, Strawberry, Apple, Lime
  • Cucumber, Celery, Greens, Lime
  • Straining preference - you can choose to leave any stray fibers in the juice, or use a nut milk bag or strainer to get any that managed to slip through. This is great if you love a really SMOOTH juice, like me!
